Contacts List

It used to be possible to sort my 'Contacts List' by their 'Star Rateing' , this facility has now gone. I have commented on this before as it is very useful to be able to group your most valuable contacts together. I try to 'Touch Base' with all of my closest contacts at least once a year just to let them know that I am still active and a member of 'GU'. This also prompts me to look at my list of data that these people are searching for.
Are you looking to re-instate this sort facility? It would also be very useful to be able to select a group and sort them into alphabetic order.
